    Ok.. I fixed it.. I Sprayed it with some WD-40 on the TB and the Spring etc. Not sticking anymore.. and Also.. I ran at englishtown tonight again. I ran 14.0 @ 92 Mph. 60' was 6.3 R/T was 2.2

    Im really pissed about my 3rd run tho... I as up against an EVO, I destroyed it off the line was flying down the track and my Intake completely fell off.. I couldn't believe it.. I'll have the Videos up either tonight or tmw.. you guys can be the witness.. but on the other hand how was my run? Especially wit what Mods I have.

    Where did the .63 come from lol? If you can get some good tires and practice launching your ET will get a lot better. That trap seems kinda low for almost being in the 13's though. Congrats non the less!

    It just depends on the shape it's in. If it's in rough shape then yea, maybe your pushing it. If it's in good shape though you should be ok. Mines got way more miles than yours (233,XXXmi) and I hope to hit high 13's this weeked with Nitto DR's.

    I pulled off a 14.5 with traction issues in 1st, and that was after a brunout and launching at idle. I was running toyo proxies at 38 psi though.

    You have to play with tire pressure, type of tire, and size of tire. With a good combo you should be able to launch at a higher rpm.

    Have them mounted on a spare set of wheels and change them out at the strip or before you go. But then again, if its raining, you probably wont be at the strip.
